Attack of the Beute Panzers

We are putting the finishing touches on the Beute Panzers photo study. We’ve decided to format this similarly to the popular APG 1946 title we produced last year, so Beute Panzers will be two volumes (French & Belgian vehicles in one, and American, British, Italian, Polish and Soviet vehicles in the other). Price per volume […]

Customers vote: Garands and Carbines win in a landslide of tin signs!

What a crazy autumn it has been! Back when the editor-in-chief of the NRA magazine American Rifleman asked me if he could use the WWII ordnance artwork from my M1 Garand and M1 Carbine tin signs in the magazine, I was happy to provide it. Little did I know that this would touch off a […]

The M1911 .45 caliber pistol book. Yes, it is almost done.

I promise, this book is almost ready to print. There is every reason to believe that you will be able to order this in the 100th Anniversary year of the M1911 pistol. Looking through the images (as I caption them), I had forgotten how many cool photos there are in this book. I has also […]

The Calendars are coming!

It is almost calendar time again, and it gets earlier every year (sort of like how the stores put up holiday decorations the moment Halloween decorations come down). The first year we did calendars, we didn’t have them printed until the 10th of January (and I admit, that was a little late). Anyway folks, please […]

New Small Arms Book: US Small Arms in World War II

Some of you may have heard or possibly even seen one of the advance copies of a new small arms photo study that I have created working with Osprey Publishing in England. The idea was to create a full encyclopedic photo study of all US small arms in WWII. There are several weapons that I could never get enough images to create a full book-length photo study about, but I found that I could create a good “chapter” in a larger book. Osprey and I had been talking for some time about a project and this book was born.

An Armor-Plated Wedding

The word got out recently that Jennifer Kelly and I are “tying the knot”, “jumping a broom”, “getting hitched”…er, we’re getting married! We’re off to sunny Las Vegas, Nevada and the Graceland Chapel in May for the ceremony and a little vacation. My intrepid designer, Mike Gerenser will be there, taking pictures, and many friends have announced they will be coming to Las Vegas too! How did I get so lucky? I have no answer, but I do have many thanks for all the good wishes we have received from family, friends and customers.

AMPS 2011

I just returned from the AMPS Nationals in Fredericksburg, VA. What a great show, and the AMPS crew does a tremendous job! I caught up with many old friends and made many new ones as well. I’d like to thank all of our customers who give such great support and feedback, it means a lot to me and to all the folks who help create the books. We debuted the new Flakpanzers and APG 1946 titles and they were flying off the tables.

Setting Suns III is going on press!

Man, did this volume ever get fat! Setting Suns III is 306 pages long and contains about 400 images. I’m very happy with this book. We’ve included a couple of images in this internet posting that came in after the layout of this book was finished. I’m not going to commit to saying that I have “officially” started work on Setting Suns IV, but I always keep my eyes open for more Japanese aircraft images. I never thought I’d be able to finish Setting Suns III, so I guess anything is possible.
